For my SIL’s 40th birthday I created a combined birthday book and card album – keep track of the birthdays and always have cards ready at hand!


2 pcs cardboard, 8×8″

12 paper bags, cut to 8″ length

ass patterned papers

12 pcs cardstock/paper with months and dates printed

1 1/4″ o-wires and


Dress up the covers and cut the paper bags to fit. Make the holes and bind together using the Bind-It-All.

Decorate the covers with papers and embellishments of choice, and make all the cards to go with it!

This is a great gift that will give pleasure in several steps – first the one who gets it, and then those that gets all the lovely cards!

For this album I used Webster’s Pages patterned papers, UTEE gold on the edges of the covers and embellishments from stash.

The Bind-It-All and wires and UTEE from Bumblebee.

I use a lot of flowers, and I need to change the appearance of them sometimes… This time I made them marbled!

Cut, die cut or punch your flowers from watercolor paper, bend the petals slightly to the back.

Add Distress Inks directly from pad to a craft sheet, mist lightly with water. Put the flowers FACE UP on the color/water area.

Mist lightly with water and let the flowers soak as much or as little ink as you like. Leave to dry.

Patterned paper is Heidi Grace, the photo mat is handmade paper from Svartvik Paper, title cut from self adhesive Bazzill with the Gazelle and colored with Glimmer Mists. Ranger Enamel Accents used on the Kaiser flowers and the roses.

The Gazelle is available at CropStop and Bumblebee, Ranger Enamel Accents from CropStop.

I had a pad of Core’dinations Black Magic in my drawer for a very long time. I didn’t use it much, besides it was hard to get here in Sweden, black isn’t my color when I scrap – I like to dress in it, but that’s all.

Anyhow I got me a few pads of the All in the Family series, and started working. The first one I used was Dusty Roses, what a color scheme! Love it!

A couple of LO’s, and close-ups:

The flower is a BossKut digital die, Daisy. Craft Too’s embossing folder and the dew drops from CropStop. Core’dinations sanded with sanding block. The bracket frame is my own design, created with Funtime Scrapbooking, the program that comes with the Gazelle.

Another digital die from BossKut, the edges sanded with a Chizzel-It tool (Provocraft).

Digital dies from BossKut and my own designs, some sanded, some not.  Kraftin’ Kimmie text stamp, available from Crafts And Me. The half pearls are all Kaiser.

BossKut digital dies and my own designs, and a stamped (?) bird from Stamps Happen.

So what’s the catch with the bird? Well, it is stamped… and then engraved! I used the Chizzel-It tool for this.

Besides Core’dinations, a shell, a button, stamps and stamp pad, a little stickles is used.

Here I upgraded some… Instead of the Chizzel-It, I used DH’s Dremel-type multi-tool. Works great! He won’t get it back, but I haven’t told him yet…

Core’dinations, stamps, stamp pads and a few basic stuff will take you a long way!

Core’dinations, Kaiser pearls and a ribbon.

Different impressions just by sanding in different ways!

Core’dinations and digital dies, a little distress inks on the lighter edges.

Core’dinations, digital dies, embossing folders (Sizzix) from CropStop, ribbon, stamps and stamp pad. I think the stamp is a 7Gypsies.

I bought a set of Hello Kitty embossing folders (Sizzix) from CropStop.

Not much extra added – I used digital dies, stamps, Cuttlebug embossing folders and a Martha Stewart embossing punch. Embossing folders and punches available at CropStop and Bumblebee.

Punch, embossing folder and a sanding block.

A Technique Tuesday stamp, where I have highlighted some areas by scraping off the top layer of the cardstock to reveal the core by using a hobby-knife.

Core’dinations Cardstock is available from CropStop and Bumblebee – they carry different series so it’s worth having a look at both places!

Will be back with more creations with Core’dinations cardstock – this is now a staple supply in my craft room!

I still have lots of cardstock left from that pad, so there will be a few more LO’s and some cards, too!

Plain clipboard with gesso for a base layer, then added Glimmer Mists, some more gesso using Glimmer Screens, another layer of Glimmer Mists, some stamps (mostly Tim Holtz) and a chipboard clock from Maya Road.

Stamps, Glimmer Mists and Glimmer Screens from Bumblebee and CropStop, clipboard from Creative Company. Gesso can be found at any craft shop.
